The Apple Music show will feature episodes hosted by each member of the band
Gorillaz have announced a new Apple Music radio show, titled Song Machine Radio. The series will be led by the virtual band’s members – 2D, Murdoc, Noodle, and Russel – with each hosting their own one-hour episode.
Unsurprisingly, Song Machine Radio will also include segments with the Gorillaz co-creators Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, as well as celebrating and reflecting on the band’s 20-year history, as detailed in the Apple Music description.
The title of the radio show is tied in with the upcoming full-length release from Gorillaz, Song Machine: Season One, which will feature new musical collaborations with the likes of St. Vincent, JPEGMAFIA, Beck, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and Elton John.
The Song Machine project has seen the band release several tracks since January this year, including “Momentary Bliss” featuring slowthai and Slaves, and “How Far?” with Skepta and the late Afrobeat pioneer Tony Allen.
Song Machine: Season One is set to release on October 23, while the first episode of Song Machine Radio will air October 19. View the announcement below.
